Effective classroom management is critical to supporting student engagement and achievement. You can spend hours crafting a creative, engaging, standards-aligned lesson, but that lesson will be of little use if taught in a chaotic or unsafe classroom. Classroom management issues are a leading cause of educator burnout. What’s more, poor classroom management can harm students by diminishing instructional time and pushing students into the school-to-prison pipeline.
Reframing Classroom Management offers educators a variety of tools to help demystify common behaviors and reinforce what works. Based input from over 1,200 educators, the handouts help users foster empathy, avoid common mistakes, improve their teacher-student relationships and find alternatives to classroom removal. A forthcoming publication will describe the research that underpins these suggestions and offer further recommendations for implementation.
